Debra Winger was born on May 16, 1955. In 1976, she made her film debut in Slumber Party ’57. That same year, she also had her first television role Drusilla in Wonder Woman. She later appeared in the films Thank God It’s Friday and French Postcards. In 1980, she gained recognition for her role as Sissy in the movie Urban Cowboy. For her work here, she received Golden Globe and BAFTA nominations. Shortly after, she was praised for her portrayal of Paula in the film An Officer and a Gentleman. She was then nominated for Best Actress at the Academy and Golden Globe Awards. Furthering her success, she starred as Emma Horton in the 1983 movie Terms of Endearment.
Again, this earned her Academy and Golden Globe nominations for Best Actress. She continued her acting career in the 1990s. During this period, she starred in the films Leap of Faith, A Dangerous Woman, and Forget Paris. Her performance in 1993’s Shadowlands also got her an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress. In the 2000s, she had performances in the movies Searching for Debra Winger, Big Bad Love, Eulogy, and Rachel Getting Married. In the 2010s, she got more active on the small screen. She played Frances in HBO’s In Treatment and currently stars as Maggie Bennett in Netflix’s The Ranch. She also plays Bernice Tavner in the Amazon show Patriot.
Has Debra Winger had Plastic Surgery?
The veteran actress has always been candid about her take on plastic surgery — she’s not a fan. “Gloria Steinem, who is a very good friend of mine, would probably be very upset with me for saying this, but sometimes women are their own worst enemy,” said The Ranch star. “Come on, girls, let’s look our age, and let’s lead with it. Let’s put the word out that it’s OK to be getting older, and to command respect for it,” she said.
